I'm the space science producer for Discovery News, and I have a special love for solar physics, manned spaceflight and investigating the inner workings of our universe. I hold a Ph.D in Solar Physics and an M.Phys in Astrophysics. The exploration of space is an adventure; it's my job to chronicle our journey.
